I recently undertook a residential architecture and interior photo shoot in Godalming, Surrey for Guildford based practice, C7 Architects.
C7 Architects are an architecture practice based near Guildford, Surrey, UK. Their management team, with over 30 years of combined experience, have successfully delivered projects ranging from £100k to in excess £50m across the UK.
This was a complete remodelling of a 1930's traditional 4 bedroom detached house in Godalming, Surrey. The architect extended the home from a single bay windowed house with two old garages into a double-fronted 5 bedroom house by adding a double height extension to the side, re-building the front facade, remodelling the entrance and stairway, along with designing a single storey open plan kitchen/diner extension to the rear and re-building the garage. The new dining area with large skylight floods the new extension with light, creating an amazing hub for family life, and the huge opening bi-fold doors create a great indoor-outdoor dining experience during the summer months, while keep the connection to the garden during the winter.
My client's brief was to have a record of the project to add to their website and to show how they are able to create great modern, yet architecturally sympathetic spaces in the challenging planning environment that is the green-belt of London.
In terms of the architectural photography, my aim was to focus on the areas of the house that the architect had really added value to, which was the new frontage, the light and airy hallway and the new kitchen/dining area. I also wanted to show how the dining area extension had helped improve the rear of the house, creating a lovely spot for eating, relaxing and entertaining outside. I chose to use minimal artificial lighting to emphasise the great natural light created by the huge windows and new skylight.
The client was delighted with the quality of the images and plans to use them on their website and advertising.
